Run through newspaper article about resistance (6)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'run through' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'newspaper article about resistance' is the subsidiary indication.
'newspaper article' becomes 'piece' ('piece' can be a synonym of 'newspaper article').
'about' is an insertion indicator.
'resistance' becomes 'r' (abbreviation).
'piece' placed around 'r' is 'pierce'.
(Other definitions for pierce that I've seen before include "Penetrate with sharp point", "Cavalry sword", "Make hole in with something sharp", "Go through", "Possibly drill", "go through", "Punch", "Stick a pin in", "Enter" and "Penetrate with a sharp instrument".)
